"A jogger was seriously injured after being hit by an unoccupied school bus in Rockville on Tuesday, Montgomery County police said...The driver, Tugjnyam Bavaa, 58, of Rockville, was not injured." When I read the lead, I thought that MCPS had purchased self-driving buses.

Agreed. However the self driving buses are a few years off.

Maybe a self driving bus wouldn't have hit and killed my very dear friend! Devoted father and all around amazing man!
